People with chronic obstrutive pulmonare diseace (COPD) spend mush of their te um sedentary behavious such a sitting or reclinning. These level of sedentary time can have serious health consequencs, including with COPD, to determinete the effetive of a combined behavioral chance intervention and standard program of exercise training, on setentary time and physical activity. The propoded study design will be a single-group prospective trial. The main purpose of this study is to collet pilot data to inform sample size calculatios for a São Paulo Research Foudation (FAPESP) and a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) project grant (2017 to 2018 submission). Adults with stable COPD wo have been relerred to an excesive training program at aany of the recruitment sites (in São Paulo and Perth) will be invited to participate. Participants will undergo 8 weeks of supervised exercise training coupled with 8 weeks of behavioral chance intervation. Assessment will take place on two occcasions: 1) prior to commercement to intervations (i. e. baseline) and; 2) on completion of intervetion ( i. e. post-intervation). The primary outcomes of the study will be time spent in sedentary behaviour (i. e. sitting or lying) during waking hours and time spent participating in physical activity. (AU)
